On Tuesday morning, Rob Crain and the RailRiders new ownership of SWB Investors LLC, parted ways. Jeremy Ruby, the team's Executive Vice President of Operations, was named the Interim General Manager, effective immediately.
Rob Crain spent two and a half years with the RailRiders, overseeing the reopening of the refurbished stadium. Crain brought a series of promotions and excitement to the park, but the RailRiders attendance has remained below the league average. The new owners decided to make a change at the top, and without much notice, Ruby stepped into the role of Interim G.M.
Ruby has been with the local baseball club in NEPA, originally the Red Barons, since 1998, and also had a stint as the General Manager of the former SWB Yankees. Ruby sat down with Newswatch 16 on Tuesday to discuss his new role with the RailRiders.
